The Final Draft accepts submissions of art, writing, photography, songs, short films, animations, sculptures, and anything creative by students and teachers currently attending Westlake High School. All work sent in must be original. Not all pieces will be featured in the magazine. Feel free to submit as much or as little as you want—the amount you submit will not factor in to the acceptance of your work.

Want examples? Check out the Editions page of our website to see past issues of The Final Draft.
